It's SENSORY ART WEEK with the ultra fab KRISTIAN from @friendsartlab over at @smocks.on and we couldn't wait to get our #smockson and join in the fun! • Today we explored our sense of touch with a little sandpaper art! I've been wanting to try this for forever and today was the perfect day. We got out our 👉🏼 super vibrant @crayola sidewalk chalk in rainbow colors per K's request 🌈💕 👉🏼 two different grits of sandpaper stolen from Daddy's handyman garage supplies 😁 and got started! • I just cut 2 rectangles of each grit, one for each of us, and we got to coloring. My favorite is Kinley's sunflowers one (maybe we should study Van Gogh next 😀🌻) and she recognized my Mondrian right away 😎😁 • I almost talked myself out of trying this project right before we started because I was sure it was just too simple, but apparently I will never learn that simple is usually the best. Kinley loved it so much she had me cut the leftover scraps into long skinny rectangles so she could do some more sandpaper art. Neither one of us could decide whether we liked chalk or crayons better -- they are different, awesome and both TOTALLY satisfying 😍 • Sensory Art Week just got started and already y'all are filling our feeds with loads and loads of incredible ideas and perfect together art stories! Keep them coming Smockstars 😎👊🏼 Kristian is gonna have a heck of a time picking this week and in the meantime I'm gonna be putting my robothumbs to work collecting your genius sensory art ideas for later 🤖👍🏼 Just in case you don't know how to participate, I'll just leave the instructions riiiight here 👇🏼 • 1️⃣ Make some art with a little human. 2️⃣ Post a pic of that art and tag @email@example.com & #smockson Need some sensory art inspo?

Some sensory art play for Nicholas today with home made yoghurt paint!
Nick loves watching Nina paint, but I was totally unprepared for how much he got into this! The best/worst part was right at the start when he got super excited and flailed his hands around, splattering blue yoghurt over just about the entire living room.
Under The Sea Spaghetti Play: This fun little activity is great for developing fine motor skills as well as teaching Connor to apply knowledge in a new setting. I cooked spaghetti in food dye and added it to a container with Connors sea creatures. Before adding the animals in I took a photo on our iPad so Connor could have a reference as to what he was looking for. We spent 10 minutes searching for the animals and matching them to the picture. I then left Connor to explore on his own it was very interesting to listen the his playing and how all the animals were "saving" each other. 😂 Harper also joined in I just popped some of the pasta on her high chair and let her play. #natureplay#greentime#childrenatplay#sensoryplayforkids#smockson#toddlerplayideas#babyplayideas#elyf#earlylearning#sensoryart#createtogether#creativekids#smockson
Sensory art!! The girls and I put our #smockson this afternoon and used sandpaper as our canvas and colored with crayons!! This has been on my list for awhile..... seemed like a good time as any with @friendsartlab theme for @smocks.on being #sensoryart we talked about how the different grades of paper felt when touching it as well as coloring on it!! Very cool!!!
Jello scented paint! 🎨 I was trying to figure out what we could make with what we already have, which isn't much, so after going through the pantry all we had was jello. I was hoping we still had kool-aid, but we didn't so I settled for jello! • • We just mixed jello powder with some white paint. I added a little bit of water to thin it down to make it easier to paint with. Luke and I smelled the 3 different paints and determined that the orange didn't smell like anything (in the box or with paint), but we could smell the lime and strawberry. The scents weren't as strong as I had hoped, but oh well! We also had a nice textured art when it dried! 😊 #smockson#jello#art#painting#sensoryart#boymom#stayathomemom#toddlermom#toddleractivities#homeschool#learningthroughplay
C A L M D O W N ✨ When it's summer sometimes we still need a little de-stress action. Sensory bottles for the win! I love the viscosity of this ultra fine powder/glitter we were donated for this project especially! Wish I knew what it was to tell you how to find it - our best guess is that it's pigment powder? Amazing results in this medium - thanks Claire for trying this out and bringing this magic to the studio the other day!
